One of the unleashed dogs grabbed the boxer’s back and the other his neck. A neighbor of O’Hara beat the dogs off with a shovel. Cassius survived with injuries.
The owner of the pit bulls, told KSBY he did not intentionally let his dogs roam loose. He claims the pit bulls broke through a window the night before the attack after seeing another dog outside.
San Luis Obispo County Supervisors are slated to vote on an aggressive animal ordinance on April 10. If passed, the ordinance would require pet owners to confine their pets if the animals are deemed aggressive.
